This morning I came into work and I heard a noise that I am not use to.... I thought it was coming from a different server however after investigating the noise I noticed it was coming from out Intel Modular Server, Model MFSYS25V2.

We have a total of 10 Hard drives which Hard drives 1-4 and 7-11 are as follows:

Drive Size: 279.39GB

HDD Write Back Cache : Disabled

Hard Drive 5

Status : Predictive Failuer (PFA)

HDD Write Back Cache: Disabled

Hard Drive 12

Status OK

Drive 12

Drive Size: 279.39GB

Usable Space: 278.46GB

Role: Dedicated Hot Spare (revertible)

In the Events tab, at 5:35 this morning for Drive 05 these messages started to appear:

time, Description = Drive has been reset, Component =Drive 05 Severity=Info, Policy ID 145, User=System


time, Description=Command times out on drive, Component=Drive 05, Severity=warning, Policy ID=159, User=System

I have no clue as to what to do, Any help would be greatly appreciated! I have so many questions:

You should remove the hard drive, and replace it with a new one. You won't need to shut down the system to do so, assuming you're running any RAID other than RAID 0.
